The Human League, Summer Camp, The Struts and The Electric Swing Circus are the latest acts to join the line-up for this year’s Bingley Music Live.
They will appear at Myrtle Park between August 30th-September 1st alongside Primal Scream, The Cribs, The Wonder Stuff, The Fratellis,Lucy Spraggan, Charlie Brown, The Lake Poets, The Temperance Movement, Loveable Rogues, Natasha Haws, Rose and the Howling North, and Holy Moly and the Crackers. With such an eclectic mix of artists already confirmed, this year’s festival is already looking to be one of the bargains of the summer with a three day ticket costing only £45 (+ booking fee).
Synthpop royalty The Human League have a back catalogue that spans nine studio albums, four EPs, thirty singles and several compilations. A shining light on the electronic New Wave scene, the group has not only achieved huge commercial success but also been responsible for influencing everyone from Madonna, Lady Gaga and Little Boots through to the acclaimed dubstep act Darkstar.
Bringing bubble-gum kitsch to this year’s festival is the aptly named boy-girl duo Summer Camp. Their lo-fi, nostalgia-driven, electro grooves cherry-pick samples and cultural references from the 60s – 80s and crafts them into upbeat, sing-along tunes with an underlying darker narrative. Derby four-piece The Struts will parade their vintage-clad swagger on stage with a collection of self-penned songs and an array of covers.
Also confirmed for Bingley Music Live this morning are The Electric Swing Circus. With their debut album scheduled for release later this year, the 6 piece band from Birmingham have been stunning audiences with their unique blend of cool 20’s swing, stomping electro beats and soaring harmonies fusing everything from breakbeat and house to jungle and dubstep in a dazzling live show.
Weekend tickets have been frozen at last year’s prices with a three day adult ticket costing £45 (+ booking fee) and a limited number of children’s tickets at £30 (+ booking fee) for 3-12 year olds (under 3s are free). Tickets are available online at www.bingleymusiclive.com/tickets or call the ticket hotline 0871 220 0260.
